Qualifying Run Schedule

W1AW Qualifying Runs

W1AW Qualifying Runs are sent on the same frequencies as the Morse code transmissions. West Coast Qualifying Runs are also transmitted monthly by other West Coast stations on various frequencies.  At the beginning of each code practice session, the schedule for the next qualifying run is presented. Underline one minute of the highest speed you copied, certify that your copy was made without aid, and send it to ARRL for grading. Please include your name, call sign (if any) and complete mailing address. The initial certificate is available for a $10 fee. Subsequent endorsement stickers are available for a $7.50 fee.

The 2019 W1AW and West Coast monthly Qualifying Run schedules are available in PDF format. 

Please note that the West Coast stations for April, July, and October are in transition.  However, there will be West Coast Qualifying Run transmissions for these particular months.
